that's probably what jerry garcia would have wanted to do after he was done hanging out and partying with you, watch your dog and kids and get the mail and stuff ...over at tito's pad....grisman would probably show up and they would jam awhile and then jer would go get your laundry and make grisman match your socks while he got another load.

oh and i hear jerry really liked doing the dishes and was always game for washing the car.

some people like children's books....others imagine that jerry could help them with some chores around the house:

Blair Jackson, in Grateful Dead: the Music Never Stopped says,:

"According to Weir, he and Barlow wrote the song from the perspective of a crazy, messianic zealot, a type which one invariably encounters in Deadhead crowds now and again. As Weir explains: 'The basis of it is this guy I see at nearly every backstage door. There's always some guy who's taken a lot of dope and he's really bug- eyed, and he's having some kind of vision. He's got a rave he's got to deliver.' In Estimated Prophet, the psychopath claims 'My time comin' any day, don't worry about me,' and Weir essentially lets him rave." (p. 180)

GO ON NOW TITO....cut loose!
